Ticket prices high for the final game

Here’s a good “duh” story with some interesting analysis attached to it: Ticket prices for the final game at Yankee Stadium are, according to Maury Brown, very high. Brown reports that the median price of tickets on the secondary market for nine of the final ten games at the stadium is $222, but the final game is in a class by itself. Tickets are going for an average of $1111 a pop with the highest marked at $18,300. Whether these seats actually sell at that price point is an entirely different story altogether.

    If one of these games gets rained out (like tonight or tomorrow) they going to actually make it up?

      Oh, how much would that fucking suck balls if you paid 5G’s for primo seats to the final game at the Stadium on Sunday and a massive rainstorm settles over the city for two days, knocking out both the Sunday game and the Monday makeup date… and then the Yankees hit the road for a week, and the season ends?

      There’s no way in hell MLB could actually schedule a makeup of a Yankees-Orioles game that wouldn’t have a shred of playoff implications on Monday, September 29th, is there? I mean, the team would scream bloody murder for it, but Selig wouldn’t be able to agree to that without violating all of the official MLB scheduling rules and guidelines, no?

      I almost want this to happen just to see how it plays out…

        yeah i mean i have tickets for today, which i bought awhile ago, I’m down for it to be knocked out and to get make up seats next year.

      They would have to make up any of the games for the Rays and White Sox most likely if the Red Sox/Twins finish close to them.

        Yeah, but I’m more interested in the (highly unlikely) doomsday scenario of the final Baltimore game being rained out…

        Although, it would also suck if you paid assloads of money for the “final home game ever” for Sunday, and then they played a makeup for a rained-out White Sox game the very next day (Monday the 22nd). THAT would be funny…

          As a ticket holder for that game…not so humorous as that scenario has been in my head all year long.

    I am one of those suckers. I payed 120 each for 2 section 39 bleacher seats for this Sundays game. Dumb yes but I have my reasons.
